Re: problem in network coused by controllers

What is the error message you received?. Can you copy and paste the error message and let me know it exactly?. I will investigate on this message and let you know the reason for that.

Re: problem in network coused by controllers


I'd check a couple of places:

#1 - Do you have LAG/Etherchannel enabled on both sides of the link (Controller & 6500)?

#2 - What is your controller multicast mode? Should be disabled (if you don't require wireless multicast apps), or Multicast (and use a unique MG address)

#3 - What is the behavior when you have only one port connected?

Please review the following link:

Using LAG is highly recommended as it not only gives you redundancy, it also gives you load-balancing and you do not have to have multiple AP-Management interfaces.
